TheArc posted a topic in Game Guides and TutorialsI suck at using the search feature on these forums, and I couldn't find out any info so I figured I'd just ask about these two slot 5 upgrades: Ship Consumables Mod 1 (+10% action time of consumables) Q1: So if your ship normal max heal is +1500 for 10 seconds, does it become a total +1500 for 11 seconds. So, new heal would be 16500 instead of 15000, is that right? Q2: I assume this is for all consumables, so laying smoke lasts longer, your radar lasts longer, your damage con lasts longer, etc. Right? Torpedo Lookout System (Increases the assured acquisition range of torpedoes.) FWIW, I have had it on my Mass, says assured torp detection range is 1.8km. Q1: Does that vary by the type of torp? I assume it does and that 1.8 is the absolute minimum... but how much benefit does it give to easier to spot torps? I thought this was a % boost to torp spotting, was it changed? Is it a flat rate now? Looking at my YY it has torp det of .8km, Halland 1.8km, Daring 1.3... so would all 3 of those ships torps still show up at 1.8km to my Mass? Or would it vary like 1.8, 2.0, 2.4 (or whatever.) Q2: Also, does it stack with the 3pt captain skill "Vigilance" (+25% torp acquisition range) to a 2.25 km range? Tnx.
anonym_bleJN7gXeLqd posted a topic in General Game DiscussionGiven that there is currently a grace period that WG has given us captains in that we can dismount upgrades for FREE, I am re-arranging my upgrades on all my ships. Specifically, I want to ask: should ships with hydro-acoustic search consumable use the Torpedo Lookout System upgrade? The former guarantees detection of enemy torpedoes at a set range (like 3 km-6km ranges usually), whereas the latter makes enemy torpedoes detectable at least by 1.8 km. Based on these descriptions, I would think that the two do NOT synergize well with each other...but I want to know what you all think about this. Specifically, I want to know if I should give my KM Bismarck, Torpedo Lookout System since her concealment sucks anyway to make good use out of the Concealment Systems upgrade...but she does come with Hydro, so I am wondering whether or not to go with the Consumables upgrade instead. I have my Iowa on Torpedo Lookout System as well, since with her speed, she can benefit from dodging torps that are detected early, and also because Iowa's detection range is not that good either. What are your thoughts? And what advice do you have for me, fellow captains?
